Posted: Updated:

Former Virginia pitcher Michael Schwimer has joined outfielder Brandon Guyer and pitcher Mike Ballard as former 'Hoos making their Major League debut this season.

Schwimer was promoted by the Phillies before their game against the Diamondbacks Wednesday night.

Schwimer was a 14th-round draft pick in 2008, and has a 9-and-1 record and ten saves for AAA Leigh Valley this season.

He's the 29th UVA player to make it to the Majors, and joins Javier Lopez, Mark Reynolds, and Ryan Zimmerman as Cavaliers who currently are competing in Major League Baseball.
